 The DVM Program at Colorado State University prepares students for careers in the veterinary field in a world-class facility in Fort Collins, Colorado.

DVM Degree Program

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program

The College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences annually admits approximately 138 new students to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program, culminating in a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. Admission to the veterinary medicine program at Colorado State is open to all students. Hands-on experience, from day one, alongside world-class faculty in an atmosphere designed to help you succeed make the Colorado State University veterinary program unique.

Program of Study

  • Years 1 and 2 include comprehensive biomedical veterinary sciences and veterinary education and hands-on clinical experiences on CSU’s main campus.
  • Years 3 and 4 work side-by-side with exceptional clinicians at the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital through a series of specialty rotations. Students are full care team members, not bystanders.
  • In the future, consider a three-year specialty residency or a PhD.
